Averagely, Lens has scored two goals in their last ten games. On the other hand, Lyon has scored and conceded at least a goal in 9 out of 10 last games. Backing both teams to score looks good on the books.

Lens vs. Lyon Match Preview: Can Olympic Lyonnais Get Back to Winning Ways?

This is an important fixture for both Lens and Lyon. Here is our preview of the two teams.

RC Lens

Lens is enjoying a good season in League 1 after their promotion. They are currently placed fifth and with 48 points with 8 games to spare. They finished second in League 2 with 53 points. Coming into this fixture, RC Lens has not lost in their last nine Ligue 1 games. However, they have a troubled defense to worry about against a fast-attacking Lyon. The hosts have won 3 and drawn thrice in 19 previous meetings with Lyon. They are 11 points off the top four with 8 games to go.

Lyon

Lyon comes into this fixture with one mission: To get back to winning ways and challenge for the title. With 9 points ahead of fourth-placed AS Monaco, Lyon looks comfortable in their Champions League qualification spot. A win on Saturday could see the visitors pass Lille on goal difference if the latter losses to PSG on Saturday. With 13 wins in 19 meetings against the opponents, Lyon is the favourites in this fixture.
